Satellite image of ice break-up on Lake Temagami, 2010

APRIL 4, 2010

Progress clearly visible

Lake Temagami, our break-up benchmark, has many openings today, including at the Mine Landing (see photo below by Bob Farr), west of Cattle Island and near the middle of the Northeast Arm.

After a high today of 17 C, and yesterday of 25, break-up is not far away.

"Last night the wind was out of the southwest to west," Bob Farr wrote in an email today. "It moved the ice considerably in many areas. It may only be a few more days now for open water, and I expect to hear of people from Bear Island going out by boat before then."

Lakes Nipissing and Wanapitei are virtually ice free. The small lakes to the south are open, as is Lake Wakimika.


  When the TFN's airboat arrived at the Mine Landing this morning, there was open water.
